The Chronicles of WaterWorld After the Hough Riots
By: Ali Taylor
About the Book
In Cleveland, Ohio, drugs, rape, violence, and mayhem became a part of a neighborhood called Hough Heights. After the Hough riots in 1966 and 1968 and the assassination of Dr. Martin Luther King Jr, the children of Hough were growing up experiencing the aftermath from a society whose forefathers knocked down obstacles of those who were abused, neglected, discriminated, and hated due to the color of their skin. Now the next generation is experiencing new obstacles which caused them to neglect the ones our leaders risked their lives to put in place.
Crime bosses Frank Burton, King George, and others come up with a plan to get rich from the negative environment of Hough. Consequently, two undercover FBI agents mysteriously disappear. King George realizes the criminal underworld activities will be threatened by the agents’ disappearance and his past will catch up with him if he did not stop. King George decides to change his ways and give back to the community. However, King George’s son, Ali, is now caught up in the criminal activities surrounding him. King George and Ali’s girlfriend, Monique, attempt to persuade Ali to leave the criminal life behind before it is too late.
